My 19-year old nephew shot himself last week. He and I were always very close, and he came to visit me the Saturday before he died.

 

I feel so lost. Of course I'm worried about his mom and am trying to comfort her. It just feels like I have no where to turn for comfort. I don't know that comfort exists. I keep wanting time to go back.

 

It didn't seem real at first. Then I started reading all the tributes from his friends on facebook. How could they be talking about my "best buddy?"

 

Any suggestions for starting to move forward are appreciated.

I am so sorry for your loss.  your choice of words feeling so lost, is so true.  My brother took his own life too on 1-31-11 and my world is changed for ever.  the pain gets deeper everyday.  All the questions I have?  why didnt I go see him?  why didn't God help him?  All this is what I suffer every day along with the reality of this horrible tradgedy.  I requested from Facebook to Memorialize his account, so that no one could ever change the way my brother left it and they did.  Because his roomate had his password and changed my brothers profile pic after my brothers passing, which hurt our family immensly.  Now its done and no one can every tamper withit, only people can post and view is all.

I am sorry to hear of your lost. Death is very hard to deal with. At times like these, the Bible has given many comfort and hope. While on earth Jesus raised the dead, and he will do it again in the very near future.  You can have the hope of seeing your nephew again, here on earth, under righteous, peaceful conditions according to John 5:28,29 and Psalms 37:9-11,29.

Jehovah has opened up the priceless opportunity for untold multitudes of people who have died to come back from the dead and enjoy eternal life.

So i hope that you are able to open you Bible and take a few moments to read and meditate on these scriptures.
